I am about to blow your mind. Nori isn’t just for making sushi. In fact, these paper-like sheets made of pressed seaweed, which typically can be found in the international foods section of a grocery store or at an Asian market, are used to make what I consider to be one of the best wraps ever.
There is something about the blending of all these flavors, and yet still being able to taste them separately, that drives my taste buds wild. Hopefully it does the same for you.
